Well, after much adieu, here is my completed faux chenille baby blanket. I got the idea from the Aesthetic Nest blog (I can't make a link for some reason but it's easily findable on her blog). Awesome! It's pretty self explanatory so I won't go into detail. The only change I made was to put a larger silky border around the blanket and instead of a fabric top I used a flannel top. I think the flannel worked about very nicely and it is sooooo soft.
